Youth Villages selected to Social Impact Exchange S&I 100 index
Social Impact Exchange is a national association dedicated to matching strategic philanthropists with effective, innovative nonprofits that are poised for growth. The S&I 100 is the first-ever broad index of nonprofits with proven results and solutions that can be scaled to meet the nation’s most pressing problems.
Organizations included in the index were carefully vetted through a comprehensive selection process completed by more than 150 evaluation experts from a variety of fields. These professional evaluators assessed the soundness and statistical integrity of each organization’s research, allowing them to identify those programs with the most demonstrable success.
“We’re so grateful for this recognition of our evidence-based approach,” said Youth Villages CEO Patrick W. Lawler. “We appreciate the opportunity to share the Youth Villages story with others who are passionate about transforming the child welfare, juvenile justice and children’s mental health systems. Together, we are helping children and families live successfully.”
Youth Villages has built a national reputation for offering the most effective programs and services to help emotionally troubled children and their families. The organization has also been recognized as a leader in children’s mental and behavioral health services by the Edna McConnell Clark Foundation, Casey Family Programs, the White House Office of Social Innovation and Civic Participation, Harvard Business School, the American Youth Policy Forum, and many others.
